The Holy Spirit waits for us to release and let go of the distractions that hinder us from centering our hearts on Christ. Even though we fathom the Kingdom of God is always present, we must make the time to be still so we can contemplate and reflect consciously in our minds on that promise. It demands a spiritual discipline within us and a desire to practice the presence of God by mindfully seeking moment by moment that reality. Dallas Willard writes in the Great Omission, God does not ordinarily compete for our attention.
Luke 17:21 neither will they say, ‘Look, here.’ or, ‘Look, there.’ for the Kingdom of God is within you.”
